FAQS

Question

Most frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions email sarah@heypear.co.uk.

Can I edit text and images?

Yes, most of my websites are built using WordPress  CMS and therefore are easy for you to update once I have designed your website.

Will I own the website?

Yes, the website is completely yours. I have admin access to your webiste, should you need any checks or changes to your website.

I can be removed as a admin if you prefer, although I won’t be able to help if anything goes wrong.

Will my website be responsive?

Absolutely! All websites are optimised for mobile phones and tablets, meaning that your site will look and perform great no matter which device people are using to visit your website.

Do you design logos?

Yes, HEY Pear design logos and branding for your business. Logos and branding is additional to your website design fee.

I also offer monthly plans for ongoing content creation, such as new graphics for your website, and social media posts.

 

 

Should I buy a domain?

You have to option to purchase the domain yourself, or I can buy it for you. I usually encourage clients to purchase their domain via 123 Reg or similar.

Which CMS do you use?

My websites are created using WordPress Content Management System. I create with WordPress because it is a solid foundation that is easy for you (the user) to update with images, text and blog posts by yourself. 

Building on WordPress means I can spend more time creating beautiful and stylish websites. I don’t use templates and create them myself, ensuring you website is unique to you and has extra stylish details.

I can also build your website using Shopify, Wix or Squarespace if required.

What is hosting?

Hosting is basically the bit of the internet where your website lives – think of it as a shop that you are renting for your business, except it is a virtual space that is keeping your business online.

How much is hosting?

Hosting is from £5 per month to £20 per month depending on the size and functions of the website. This can be paid monthly or annually. Alternatively, you can arrange your own hosting. I recommend using Siteground.

How long does it take?

Timings vary, but most projects take 6-8 weeks. The more prompt you are with sending over the content, the quicker the website can be made.

If you need it sooner, this can be discussed.

How much does a website cost?

Prices vary depending on the project. They start at £800 for a simple website up, approximately £1,500-£3,000 for an e-commerce website, and from  £2,000-£6,000 for a bespoke website.

Payment is 50% before work commences, and 50% on completion. If you would like to split your payment over 4 to 6 months, I am happy to discuss this with you.

Do you provide copywriting services?

Clients are expected to provide their own copy for the website.

However, HEY Pear work with a professional and highly recommended copy writer, with fee’s starting at £600.

Do you offer maintenance plans?

Yes, I offer various plans depending on your requirements.
